The Stone Mountain giant carving commemorating the military leaders of the Confederacy, Stone Mountain Park is world famous in the Atlanta area. Excellent place to take the family for some historic facts, plenty of plaques to read, things to do and places to remember. Be sure to take the tram up to the top for some fantastic views and bring... More

Had a great time. Did the park and attractions and paid for the VIP seating for the laser show and fireworks. The carving is amazing to see and getting on top of the mountain you had great views. If you don't want to pay for the VIP seats you will have to claim a spot on the main lawn early.

This stone carving is a landmark! If you're ever in Georgia or near the Atlanta area, it's definitely worth a visit. The rock is massive, and I would suggest first climbing it up the other side, and then driving over to see the carving. The carving is remarkable and definitely worth time to spend - you can also sit out... More

Our "stone" trip through Georgia had to include this monument on this gigantic granite mountain. The park is beautiful. You can take a skyride to the top of the mountain, a railroad ride around the park, a "duck" ride through the park on land and water or enjoy watching all the above at your table at the golf course which...

We spent the entire day in Stone Mountain Park- we spent the morning hiking up to the top of stone mountain. WOW breathtaking views. I am a born and raised Floridian, so I am not used to "mountains" or "hills" so I had some moments of heavy breathing and wondering what I had gotten myself into. But wow, once we... More

We could seethe carvings from a distance and thought maybe up closer they would appear much larger. But even from the base of the mountain the carvings did not seem huge. However when you looked at the detail and envisioned the work required to produce the carvings one could the overall effect was impressive.

It is much larger than it looks, read the story behind the carving. It is very interesting. There are also view camera's so you can get a close up look! Or bring your own binoculars.
